Road Construction Season

It’s that time of year again — road construction season.

North Dakota is the first state in the nation to complete its Interestate from border to border. That means some of the pavement in the Interstate System is the oldest in the nation…and it’s life span is over.  It must be replaced.

Then, there are places as in this photo in Fargo where the city has grown, transportation demands have changed and grown and new lanes, interchanges and bridges must be added to accommodate the growing population.

Going down I-94 coming up on the junction of I-94 and I-29, this is the sight to welcome travelers…and by next year, it will be the same sight, only in a different location.
Road construction in North Dakota never ends.
